Going to church, reading the bible, listening to Christian music will not advance your spiritual life. These activities may give you more understanding but until you are ready to lay down your life and take up your cross this leads nowhere.

What I am talking about is the sacrifice of self to advance the cause of Jesus Christ in the world. There is a destiny that God had for each of us that only we can personally discover. We can discover it only by detaching from the world and making ourselves available for the Holy Spirit. By detaching from the world--now you have time--the commodity that most Christians are not willing to give.

Jesus said, "Self-help is not help at all. Self-sacrifice is the way, to finding yourself, your true self. (Matthew 16:25)

"God has planted eternity in the human heart." (Ecclesiastes 3:11)

"Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the Kingdom of God." (Luke 9:62)

"The most important thing is that I complete my mission, the work that the Lord Jesus gave me." (Acts 20:24)

"We have been sent to speak for Christ." (2 Corinthians 5:20)

"We are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus, to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do." (Ephesians 2:10)

Scripture Of The Day – February 24, 2021

Posted 02-24-2022 at 05:38 PM by Albert Finch


"Therefore leaving the elementary teaching about the Christ, let us press on to maturity"...Hebrews 6:1

Don't allow yourself to stagnate and become callous and cold. Now is the time to awake from slumber and rouse to reality (see Romans 13:11-14)! Arise and shine and push on to new heights (see Isaiah 60:1-5).

There is a wonderful grace offered for us to advance in the times of adversity! The invitation is extended to all saints; however, by a lack of commitment to advance God’s Kingdom many will disqualify themselves. This is a time to be desperate for the revealed glory of God as we advance in more revelation of God’s calling on our life.

One of the marks of these overcomers will be hunger and complete dissatisfaction with business as usual. This holy hunger will drive us to seek the Lord on a much more increased level.

Jesus states in Matthew 5:6, "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be filled." The Amplified Bible reveals, "...those who hunger and thirst for righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God)...shall be completely satisfied!"

It's time to remove all lids of limitations off and believe God for big things, being assured that He is able to do much more than we could ask or even think (see Ephesians 3:20-21).
